Sirona Launches inLab® Multilayer Design Software that Utilizes VITA® Rapid Layer Technology at the CEREC® 25th Anniversary Celebration in Las Vegas


The world of CAD/CAM dentistry just keeps getting better. With Sirona hosting its CEREC 25 event this weekend, I'll be putting up info that I think is relevant to both users and non-users alike. While many dentists are advocates of the whole computer controlled aspect, many just don't want to give up the control to the machine. Of course, no matter which side you lean toward, the technology creates benefits that trickle into other aspects of what we do. Because of this, keeping up to date with this subject can have positive outcomes for you and your patients. Read on for the latest details:


Rapid Layer Technology Enables the Production of Both the Substructure and Accompanying Full-Contour Overlay With a Few Mouse Clicks

Long Island City, NY (August 26th, 2010) – Sirona Dental Systems (Nasdaq: SIRO) today announced the availability of the inLab Multilayer Design Option, which utilizes new VITA Rapid Layer Technology, during the CEREC® 25th Anniversary Celebration, a milestone event celebrating the 25-year anniversary of its CEREC CAD/CAM system.

VITA Rapid Layer Technology is a high-speed bridge production technique that utilizes innovative Sirona inLab V3.80 software, along with the Sirona inLab MC XL milling unit, to mill both the framework and corresponding full-contour overlay with a few mouse clicks. Natural-looking veneer structures can now be manufactured quickly and simply.

This fully computerized process guarantees efficient production of the substructure and overlay structure at once, producing fully anatomical bridges and crowns without the need for traditional waxing, porcelain layering or pressing.

Using Sirona inLab V3.80 software, the VITA Rapid Layer Technology process starts with the generation of the anatomical multi-unit bridge or crown on screen. The software automatically calculates the data for both the substructure and fully contoured overlay within a few seconds.

The framework is then milled from a VITA In-Ceram® YZ block, and the full-contour overlay is milled from VITABLOCS TriLuxe forte polychromatic ceramic, perfectly matching the VITA YZ substructure with an adhesive luting composite, creating a long-lasting bond between the substructure and veneering ceramic for an esthetic bridge restoration with long-term durability.
